Heat & Humidity Getting Worse

Get ready for what is set to be the hottest week of the year across Indiana.

It’s not the heat… but the high humidity that will make it feel downright miserable outside.

Today, highs hit the low to mid 90s but it will feel up to 105 because of the humidity.  There’s a 30% chance for scattered showers or thunderstorms as we head into the afternoon.  Some storms North of I-70 may be strong to severe with damaging winds being the major threat.  Because the atmosphere is so moist, very heavy rain is possible in individual thunderstorm cells.  An isolated tornado or even large hail cannot be ruled out from any severe storm that pops.

Overnight, we only drop to the mid 70s with a chance for isolated showers and storms.

Tuesday begins the streak of some of the hottest and most humid days of the year.  All of Central Indiana is under an excessive heat watch Tuesday afternoon through Saturday evening.  That’s because during peak heating it will feel like 105 to 115 degrees, each day.

Take a look at the 7 day below… low and mid 90s look to settle in through the weekend.

Take care, drink lots of water, and stay cool inside as much as you can.
